NDAGS: Danish Church Book Research

  • 15 Nov 2021
  • 6:30 PM
  • Hosted by NDAGS online

Danish church books contain a fantastic amount of genealogical information and it’s worth researching the original scanned pages. But the layouts can be unwieldy and the handwriting sometimes near impossible to read. This program aims to give background about Denmark’s church books, review how the national archives present the pages, and give pointers about interpreting hand-writing or uncommon words. It will also illustrate flourishes used by different priests, including margin doodles. Guess what one priest drew for each marriage entry! The speaker is Cathy Kristiansen, of Danish Ancestors & History.
